Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is all shades of awesome. There are so many lovable things about her and today we want to talk about her style.
What’s amazing about Chimamanda’s style is that she only wears clothes made in Nigeria. She is using her status to help support local designers from Nigeria by wearing their pieces instead of world known designer label.
Her #projectwearnigerian has definitely made locally made Nigerian dresses be seen and appreciated by our Western counterparts.

“When Nigeria’s economy went into a recession as a result of the decline in oil prices and a retrograde government policy, there was a lot of rhetoric about ‘buying Nigerian-made products’ to help the economy,” Adichie said . “I already bought Nigerian fashion, but I thought it might be interesting to wear only Nigerian-made clothes. I hoped to bring a bit of attention to Nigerian fashion, especially to the smaller names, and I also wanted to do my bit in supporting Nigerian-made things.”
